Colonel Abrams is the self-titled debut album of Colonel Abrams, released in 1985. This album consists of garage house-influenced urban contemporary songs with lyrics and vocal performances provided by Abrams. Includes four Hot R&B singles chart hits: "The Truth," "Over and Over," "Trapped," and "I'm Not Gonna Let You" and the minor R&B chart hit "Table for Two." In addition, all the cuts of the album reached the top of the Hot Dance Singles chart.
This is another great, but completely underrated album by obscure UK rock band (from Liverpool) which wasn't issued in their homeland (in contrast to some of their singles). The same fate met the other British groups from early 70's like Light Of Darkness, Diabolus, lronbridge or Grail. This LP was recorded in London and released in 1971 in USA (by Cadet Concept) and in Italy (by Music Records). The highlight is very moving anti-war anthem ‘Six Days War‘ and the beautiful progressive ballad Lord High Human Being. This fascinating, quasi-progressive and very melodic album contained an eclectic mix of styles, ranging from atmospheric psychedelia, through guitar based soft-progressive to folky ballads - not far away from late 60's The Beatles combined with early 70's The Strawbs and The Moody Blues.
